Handcrafted Body Care Recipes

It's time to get rid of the dull winter skin by exfoliating and increasing the circulation. Body Scrubs and Polishes are easy to make with a few ingredients already in your kitchen.

A very simple scrub is made by mixing one of your favorite oils - like olive or avocado - with some sea salt or raw sugar.

Here's a simple recipe for Oatmeal Body Scrub:
1/4 C Cornmeal
1/4 C Rolled Oats - ground fine
1/4 Almonds - ground fine
1T Oil of your choice
10 Drops Essential Oil of choice
Use a food processor or coffee grinder to grind your oats and almonds. Mix dry ingredients. Drop in the Essential Oil and mix well. Add Oil of your choice right before use. In a warm shower wet your skin and then massage scrub in a gentle circular motion.

After showering with your Scrub or Polish of choice follow up with a great moisturizer or body oil.

Time is Money

Many of us go through our daily routines without placing enough thought as to what we are trying to accomplish and what our time is worth.

In our industry, many comprise the selling price of their products based mostly on the cost of goods and have not factored in the cost of their time.

What is your time worth, $2.00 an hour, $20.00 an hour?

How much time does it take to make your product from start to finish?
